Hey Stephen, how you doing brother?
Been a long time…

Thanks Stephen, yeah life is ok, Thanks for asking, although just a few years ago when I turn 50, The body starts to take its toll, aches and pains, and some major health issues over the last couple of years, but I am doing much better now.
I figure life is short… Live it up, it’s later than you think!
So I bought a Larry Dino, and from the first note I played through it I am completely ecstatic with it!

:thumbsup:

Gary, ‘thegame’ helped me make the decision for the amplifier and has been absolutely unbelievable in answering questions, his Dino knowledge has been invaluable :yes:

I would be into trying a Larry. One of the few I have not played on.

Welcome to the forum, Larry! I love the sounds that I heard in the clips of the Dino 962 amp head. Unfortunately, I've never seen, heard, or played through a Larry Dino 962 amp head in the U.S. The sounds are good to me and the build quality is excellent. Do you plan on having a U.S. distributor in the western United States?

There are no clips of the DINO 962 yet, nowhere.
You presumably have heard very old clips of the DINO 939, which I've quickly taken back in 2006 especially for Mike Fortin on his request, to decide about ordering a DINO
These clips meanwhile absolutely aren't reference of the sound quality of my current DINO 939 and DINO 962 models.

No I don't plan to have a distributor in the USA anywhen in future, because my annual output of amps is much too low.
But soon I can give you the contact of someone in Orlando/FL, where you can try a DINO 962 in his studio.

My own custom 150w Larry right here:

Its called the ARES 3-C. In essence its a Dino. 3 independent channels with an additional 'mode' on the clean channel gives this 4 distinct tones overall.
1) California Clean (CC)
2) SRV (shared controls with the clean channel)
3) British Hotrod (BHR)
4) Scream + (SCR plus) - basically a slightly revoiced Scream channel with some BHR like upper mid grind dialed in and tighter lows compared to the creamier, more liquid stock Scream voice.

And lots of tubes :lol: :LOL:

Seven preamp tubes like every DINO, no matter whether 939 or 962
But six instead of regular four output tubes for the Steamhammer Output Section :rock:

Oh yes I remember, into this amp rebuild went some 'Blood, Sweat & Tears' :D

Here two more pictures, to complete the impression

Welcome Sir!!!
Once Again I have to check my bucket list of amps. Your in the top 3.
I still have 2 amps in my jam room I haven't taken out the box yet. Been over a month or so. :lol: :LOL:
Seems the older I get the less desire to play. But still love the Thrill of the Chase!! :D

SKOT transformers, made with very old core material for authentic early 80's tone. He's using a different company now but with the same materials. OT is standard one as used in a Dino, but the PT is beefed up with stronger primary and heater winding to accommodate the 6 output tube design.

Maybe clips one day...

Hi guys,

I own a Dino Preamp from the 90ies. A great amp with four channels/sounds!
